ARMANI - FROM FASHION DESIGN TO BATHROOM DESIGN

Giorgio Armani  
(born 11 July 1934) is an Italian fashion designer, particularly noted for his menswear. He is known today for his clean, tailored lines. He formed his company, Armani, in 1975, and by 2001 was acclaimed as the most successful designer to come out of Italy, with an annual turnover of $1.6 billion, and a personal fortune of $5.3 billion.

Roca is the world leader in the definition of bathroom space and a 
benchmark reference in design.

The company was founded in 1917, is active in more than 135 markets 

with more than 65 factories spread over 17 countries.

ROCA GALLERY Barcelona
Currently, Roca has showrooms en Madrid, Lisbon and London 
(both under construction), Sofia, Sao Paulo, Prague, Shanghai, 
Vienna (under construction) and Casablanca. Roca have always 
prided themselves on their highly professional teams who 
endeavour to develop solutions in bathroom space. That is 
why they have created the Innovation Lab. which functions as 
a working unit of the Roca Design Centre. The Innovation Lab. 
works independently from the day to day operations on product 
development ; interdisciplinary working groups are created to 
research and probe into different anthropological, ergonomic 
and social necessities among others. Their main task is to 
identify future necessities through the study of users´ behaviour 
and market changes, create new concepts and develop them. 
Such a process demands the perfect combination of creativity 
and the right techniques for finding practical solutions.

This is the key resource to drive ahead and lead the company's 
transformation process whose ultimate goal is its acknowledge-
ment and recognition as the company which defines the bath-
room of the future.

In line with its firm commitment to technology, design and 
innovation, Roca works closely with highly distinguished 
architects (Moneo, Chipperfield, Herzog & De Meuron), 
interior designers and design studios (Benedito, Giugiaro,
Schmidt & Lackner). Roca is also deeply committed to 
environmental protection as demonstrated in the 
creation of its sustainable products which feature water 
and energy-saving devices.
